Foolproof organic way to treat lawn for chiggers?
This is probably common knowledge 'round these parts, but I don't know it yet. Is there a foolproof organic way to treat my lawn for chiggers? I got about ten bites in all last year, so they're not a big problem, but I must be super-sensitive to them or something. The welt gets really big and red and angry and ITCHY and stays like that for a full week until it finally starts to subside, despite all treatments, including Chiggerrid (sp?). Nobody else in the family seems to get bitten at all, or if they do, they're not as sensitive.
All of us, including the puppy (and hummingbirds, scissor-tails, butterflies, etc.), play in the backyard everyday, so organic is important.
